BRUSSELS - LUMOS
Crix Cafe, BE
21 JAN 2020
Together with LUMOS, we are planning a cosmocafé in the crix café in Brussels on January 21. The topic is ‘helping not helping’, focus is on orphanage tourism and volunteering and its associated harms, and on how to equip young people to make ethical choices when looking at travel and volunteering options.
Named after the light-giving spell in the Harry Potter books, Lumos is an international non-governmental, non-profit organisation founded by J.K. Rowling to help the eight million disadvantaged children in orphanages around the world to be returned to their family or placed in a loving family environment.
Crix-Cafe (BXL) is generously opening its doors for this private conversation.
